We had the most amazing experience renting this space for our wedding reception! The space itself was perfect for our event. We used the bar area for food and cocktails, the music area for dancing and live music, and also had the outside area for extra seating and a space to get some fresh air between sets. But better than the venue were the people we worked with- Diz and Wes. Diz helped us orchestrate everything, answering all of our questions and helping us get the space set up just how we wanted. He was reliable and flexible. Wes was our bartender the day of and was the absolute BEST! His drinks were delicious but it was truly his bright energy and positive attitude that made us all fall in love with him. I could not recommend this space more! It was affordable, a great location, and the best people to work with. If we ever have another large scale event, we will definitely be booking again!

This was the perfect venue for us to host our 5 year old's birthday party! Hear me out... Our daughter has a December birthday, so we needed an indoor venue that could support roughly 40 kids and 50 adults coming and going. After touring the space, we elected to have arts/crafts in the music area and for food/beverage to be served in the bar area. We also had access to music, which we streamed our birthday playlist throughout the venue. We had a cash bar and was able to easily set up a variety of kid friendly snacks and birthday cupcakes. Diz and team were a DREAM to work with, and highly responsive to my random questions I had leading up to the day. THANK YOU! Everyone had a brilliant time and said how creatively we used the space. Honestly, I think many parents were thankful to be able to send their kid(s) off to craft in one room while they could socialize in the other. We are likely to use this space again next year!

Jesse's space was PERFECT for our 2-day team retreat. The space itself is lovely and soothing. Our team enjoyed being able to relax on the couches, step outside for breaks, and we were easily able to connect our AV equipment for group presentations. Jesse was so accommodating and flexible. She thought of everything to make sure we were comfortable and had the space to ourselves. I also can't write a review without mentioning the sweet alpacas and donkeys, as well as the gorgeous view from the yurt deck. Would HIGHLY recommend renting this space!

Diz and team were amazing with helping with our event (post-wedding brunch)! They were so accommodating and helpful. The space was the perfect size for our event -- with the two main rooms, there was plenty of space for everyone to mingle, and a variety of seating/standing opportunities. There was plenty of bar/table space to set up the donut and coffee spread we had. The staff member even helped us a ton with clean up which was really appreciated and unexpected! The groom and groomsmen arrived about 30 minutes early on the day of to set up, and Diz helped them put up decorations. The walls are all sound paneling so we could use tacks directly in the material. Loved the quality of the sound system. It was super easy to plug in a phone to play our own playlist, and each of the rooms could be controlled separately. Gotta love the Big Lebowski vibes too. The giant statue is so much fun. Great space for an event.

About Portland

Portland is the largest and most popular city in Oregon and the average temperature is about 60 degrees, so you can plan an outdoor event between April and October without needing winter coats. And you won’t ever have to worry about breaking a sweat because the high for July and August is only 82 degrees.

Portland has several nicknames including Bridgetown, Beervana, and Rose City. These nicknames arise from the vast amount of each of these items in Portland. If you need beer or roses (or a bridge) for your event, you have come to the right place.

Pros and Cons of Events in Portland

With a diverse variety of event spaces in Portland, it is an ideal place for any kind of event from business to pleasure. However, you should know the advantages and disadvantages of Portland first.


  • They have no sales tax

Portland has no sales tax at all so whatever the price tag is, that is how much you pay. In fact, the entire state of Oregon is tax-free. So, you can save some big bucks on those high-ticket items.

  • Summers are fantastic

You will love summer in Portland if you are not a fan of 90- to 100-degree weather. The highs in the summer are typically 80 degrees or below at the hottest time of the day and evenings are actually kind of chilly, even in August.

  • The vibe is casual

Even in the heart of the city, you may feel like you are in a laid-back rural area with all of the easy-going people living there. The people just seem so relaxed. Maybe it has something to do with all the green spaces.

  • Tons of green spaces

With more than 200 parks and gardens in Portland, the lush greenery from all of the precipitation makes the whole place seem healthier than other cities. The trees are tall and full, lawns are thick and healthy, and you can find gardens all over.

  • The food is great

Portland has some of the best cuisines with all of the star chefs in the city. Some of the iconic foods to enjoy in Portland include fried chicken, oysters, fish sauce wings, donuts, ice cream, and of course, beer. Portland has more breweries and pubs than any other place in the US.


  • High crime rate

Portland has one of the highest crime rates in the United States. And within the state, over 97% of the cities have a lower crime rate than Portland. The safest neighborhoods include Roanoke, Portland Heights, and Englewood.

  • Traffic is bad

The reason for the nickname, Bridgeland, is also the reason for the horrible traffic jams every day. There are bridges everywhere due to the rivers and you are better off riding a bike or walking across to avoid the wait.

  • Swimming may not be as fun

If you are a fan of water sports, you may want to bring a wetsuit when you hit the water because it rarely gets what most people would consider comfortable. You may be able to enjoy a dip in August at the hottest time of the day, but you will want to be out before dark when the temperature drops.

  • Not as much sun

This ties into the swimming complaint. The sun just does not seem to shine on Portland as much as other cities. The cloud cover hangs out much of the time so if you are trying to get some sun, you may want to head to Miami instead.

  • Not much diversity

Portland is not what you would call a diverse city. It has actually struggled with this problem for decades and although it is improving, the city just does not have a large number of varying ethnicities. An event in a city with different places to eat and people to see is more fun.

Famous Event Locations in Portland

  • Forest Park

Forest Park has almost 5,100 acres that act as a refuge for many at-risk and endangered animals and plants. They have more than 80 miles of trails too. Don’t miss the Witch’s Castle along the Wildwood Trail. Book an intimate event space with a built in bar near Forest Park to relax after the event.

  • Oregon Zoo

If you enjoy nature, stop by the Oregon Zoo where they have over 1,800 animals in 232 species on 64 acres. It’s a great place to wander around after a long day of hosting or attending an event. Head there to let loose and listen to the birds sing.

  • Pittock Mansion

Pittock Mansion was built in 1914 and is now a 23-room museum with antique furnishings and gardens. See historical exhibits like the Steinway piano and Limoges china as well as a masonic sword that belonged to Henry Pittock. If you like historic homes, book a 1910 Portland Four Square home with the vibes of Pittock Mansion where you can relax while you prepare for your event.
